Communication Studies


Behind the Scenes at 48Hours

Watch two teams made up of third year Television and Screen Production students as they get creative and lose sleep during the 2015 48Hour Furious Filmmaking competition.
By studying communications at AUT, you’ll be equipped with the listening skills to hear what the world is saying and gain insights into what people want to have conveyed. This will allow you to produce relevant and engaging stories – whether that’s with words, images, film, experience or sound. You’ll learn to illuminate the damaging truths underneath attempted cover-ups, and hopefully, effect some change.

Whatever area you specialise in, AUT will provide you with the best foundation to launch your career into the world of communications.
